largemouth, walleye and sturgeon

Postby DonR » Mar Thu 24, 2016 3:03 pm

9 lb 6 oz lmb caught in Lake Toho, Florida on a 10" plastic worm. Only caught 3 fish in two days....this one more than made up for that!

Didn't measure this walleye I caught in the Wisconsin River while wade fishing for smallies. Fairly certain I caught it on a Yum Crawbug in green pumpkin. My biggest measured eye was 28" caught in Kawnipi Lake, Quetico Provicial Park, Ontario, Canada.

Caught this sturgeon in the Menominee River on the border of Wisconsin and the UP while fishing for smallies. It hit a smallie beaver. The fish becomes stunned when turned upside down. It swam away strong.

Memories of great times...

The sturgeon fight was awesome. I honestly never thought I would bring it in. It made a turn upstream and that's when the slight edge went in my favor. 10lb Fireline

I assumed it was snagged the whole time. I guess it must have liked the scent of the plastic?

We didn't measure the lmb. Kinda funny that my PB lmb and smb were both weighed but not measured.
